Game 4 Vancouver at Dallas

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
So by this point I think it's safe to say it would be 2-1 for one team rather than 3-0. But why is it that score? Games 1 and 3 were as close as they get and game 2 was all about the Stars. The Canucks won game 3 because of 2 defensive breakdowns not because of anything they really did. On the first goal Turco was telling his d-man to reverse the puck behind the net a...
I sat there last night watching the MLB all-star game (damn you NHL offseason lull!), and I realized that most of the MLB analysts had the same opinion as hockey analysts did earlier in the year about the NHL all-star game. There was no passion, this game has no meaning, what are we doing here? I even heard one analyst say that when he was a kid he absolutely loved watchin...
Please hear me out... This may just work: Break the AllStar Game up into a double header... from each coast. * Select an all star team from each conference from a pool of players that were not on the Conference winning team. * Select a city in each confernece -- possibly the conference championship city -- and have a game in each, in a double header format. * H...
This is my first blog on this site, and will be one of many more into the future... I hope. The players for the All-star Fan Ballots have been announced, and already there are a few notables left off... Martin Gerber, Rod Brind'amour.... etc. Now, using these two as prime examples, statistically they are among the best players in the league. Gerber leads th...
Sidney Crosby leads all Eastern Conference vote getters by over a 2:1 margin. Will he end the season with over 240 points and is he twice as good as his closest talent? I say assuredly "No." The leading scorer in the NHL and the best player in the NHL today is Vincent Lecavalier and he has less than one third the votes of Sid. What gives? Daniel Briere, a great player...

2008 All-Star Game Jerseys

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
So I was looking at the NHL shop when I came across the All Star Game jerseys and the first thing that popped into my head was "Really?" [img]http://nhl.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/p3904301th.gif[/img] [img]http://nhl.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/p3904347th.gif[/img] This is the first year of the new RBK Edge jerseys and this is the best color scheme ...
Already Sidney Crosby's unfortunate slide into the boards at the Igloo has been treated by most hockey media outlets as The Titanic, Hindenburg and Kennedy assassination all rolled into one. The NHL Networkwent out of it's way to let us know that Crosby's injury is a league wide issue and not just a Penguins issue. Will Crosby be missed at the All Star game? Sure. But ...

Ready??? Break!

Posted Friday | Comments 0
At the end of last nights game you could almost feel a collective sigh from the team. The All Star Break is here and the Preds can use a break. After playing four game in six nights (including the brutal trip to Denver) the team gets a much needed break. A time to recharge. Time to heal. Time to take a look in the mirror. [b]Last nights 4-3 OT loss was frustrating[/b] ...
I came across this video that shows when the NHL expanded the All-Star Game to an All-Star Weekend. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcloVGwI80Q[/url] After watching, bring back the original events! That crowd is really into it.

Time to Move On

[b]The first person to tell you he is disappointed [/b]about not receiving the MVP award in the All-Star game will be Rick Nash. Yes, he had a hat trick, and you could certainly make the argument that all three were very nice goals. [b]The All-Star game is billed as a showcase of talent[/b]- the game's best players on the same stage for one night. Hockey fans cannot den...

Vote for Kaleta!

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Inspired by the 2006-2007 all-star campaign for Rory Fitzpatrick, I've decidied to start a campaign for Buffalo tough guy Patrick Kaleta (you can tell I'm a Sabres fan). I am hoping to put a website up if this recieves a positive response. We will do the best we can to get him to the ASG in Montréal! So, who's with me?

All Star Disaster

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
From http://capsstop.blogspot.com The NHL All Star Game has turned into a joke. This coming year the game will be played in Montreal. The Canadians and their fans are celebrating their centennial and the NHL felt it only right to reward them with the game during such a historic season. The only problem with the whole game is the process for who will start. Less than ...
Today Sabre Prospects Nathan Gerbe & Tim Kennedy were named to the Planet-USA AHL All Star team. In fact Gerbe was named a starter. [b]Gerbe [/b]currently has 25 points in 23 games for the Pirates so far this season. That total is good for fifth in the league amongst rookies. [b]TK [/b]also has been named to the Planet USA team. He currently sits second in the "A" ro...
[img]http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/04S17sY9DY0lo/610x.jpg[/img] All right grumpy Rangers fans, its time to start pulling on those belts because another stretch run is about to begin and its shaping up to be a doozy. Yes, the Rangers aren't the perfect team, and they have been criticized about their flaws more often than a teenager at a dermatologist. But in al...
Maybe I am just getting old, or maybe there's a burr in my saddle, or maybe, I'm just an angry guy. -Gary Bettman talking about how every team has been helped by the CBA that ended the lockout. Has Gary heard of a team called the Phoenix Coyotes? The one that is expected to lose between $30 and $45 million this year? I remember back when Wayne Gretzky's group was attemp...
Or so Mr. Campbell claimed when quoted by TSN. "We've all got obligations to the fans, the rights holders -- this game is being televised around the world." Well, exactly how many people in the large USA hockey market of greater Detroit will be watching any of the All-Star festivities now with no Wings on the roster? Hope the rights holders and sponsors appreciate the n...
N.H.L. All-Star Game Should Show-Case the Best That Hockey Has to Offer All-Star Weekend is a chance for the National Hockey League to showcase this great game and all of its aspects. Currently, the All-star game itself is, well, monotonous. As fun as the weekend is said to be, if I were just new to the game of hockey, and the all-star game was the first hockey game I...
Personally, I think the All-Star game should stay for many reasons and here is why. As a die hard hockey fan it is always fun to watch the best of the best from each conference go head-to-head and showcase there talents. It is a fun filled weekend for everybody and it allows the players to let loose for a few days and have fun. I am really excited for the new changes they ...

State of the Sabres

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
As President Obama was finishing up adressing the nation, the Buffalo Sabres were putting the finishing touches on the Ottawa Senators. the 3-2 win in Kanata Tuesday night put the Sabres at 51 points, 4 behind eighth place Atlanta. We have reached the All-Star break, which marks the half way point of the season for most of us. Buffalo can easily catch Atlanta, who has p...
first of all I have The Hockey news to thank for the idea of a third team but the rest is all my own thoughts. For the First All Star Team you get ten sports writers to pick their top 21 top players and these are your "First All Stars". I don't mean just anyone either, people like Bob Mckenzie and Mike Milbury will pick this team. So this would be the team to b...
Before I get into the blog, let it be known, that it's just that, a blog. A semi-whimsical place to put my thoughts on what I think is going on with the Wild. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to business. At the All Star break, the Wild sit in the 8th seed in the playoff picture. Also as it stands, I would see the Wild getting bounced in the first round i...
On Wednesday, the NHL announced a new realignment of the NHL All-Star Game for the upcoming game in Nashville, Tennessee. Here is the new format...(via NHL press release) *The 2016 Honda NHL® All-Star Game will be a three-game tournament played in a 3-on-3 format with a prize pool of $1 million to be paid in its entirety to the tournament’s winning team. *...

What may have been a joke turned into a blessing in disguise John Scott. So this is where I came up with a great way to do the all star game. Keep the 3v3 and each division. Very entertaining. Keep fan voting with a twist - Player must have played minimum 20 games. This prevents Ahlers and injured players. Otherwise fair game because anyone who plays in the NHL deserves...
What a spectacle in Smashville. This weekend could not have worked out better for the city of Nashville and for the league. Let's look at my predictions again: 1. "Matt Duchene will win fastest player award. 2. A Hometown Nashville player will win the Breakway Challenge on the Hometown goalie 3. She's Weber will obliviously win the Hardest Shot 4. The skills ...
With a day off en route to Tampa, Florida, today will be a day to discuss about the NHL All Star Game, the new goalie tandem in Columbus, mid season picks, healthy scratches, playoff format, and trade rumors. Over the past 48 hours, the National Hockey League has announced the All Star Rosters and coaches and jerseys. Representing the Jackets in the Metropolitan Divisi...
Look I know that many think the all star is stupid, a farce, hurts the league and doesn't belong. Many seem to forget this is mainly an event for kids and hence why the nhl keeps it and continues to try and improve it. Some of it has worked. Lately people seem to get into the 3 on 3 tournament. Here are some ideas I think would improve the game for the fans. 1st - Keep...
